Lago Tugs Safely Guide Queen Elizabeth 2 In and Out of Oranjestad Harbor

Tres Candidatos Nomina pa Yena
Vacatura den Junta di Thrift Plan

February 8 was a memorable
day in Aruba’s tourist history:
the Cunard Line’s largest tour-
ist ship, Queen Elizabeth 2,
docked at Oranjestad harbor at
about 7 a.m. The floating luxury
hotel, measuring 963 feet in
length and 105 feet in breadth
with a maximum draft of 32 feet
6 inches, was assisted during
docking operation by the two
festively decorated Lago tugs
"Esso Oranjestad” and ‘Esso
San Nicolas”.

Bringing over 1400 tourists to
Aruba, the 65,863 GRT ocean
liner can accommodate over
2000 passengers. She has a
crew of 940, including 181 offi-
cers and 759 hotel staff.

Fully airconditioned, the QE2
has a theater with seats for 530
people, two outdoor and two in-
door swimming pools for guests
and one for the crew. Its three
main restaurants are: the Co-
lumbia, with 500 seats; the Grill
Room, with 100 seats; and the
Britannia, with 815 seats.

Built with thirteen decks, the
height from keel to masthead
is about 203 feet. Her keel was
laid on July 4, 1965 and the
floating hotel resort was com-
missioned on April 18, 1969.

The main double-reduction
geared turbines of 110,000 horse-
powerful twin-screw merchant
ship afloat, with a service speed
of 28-% knots. She has only
three boilers and is the first pas-

senger vessel to be equipped to
navigate by space satellite. She
is also provided with computer
equipment that is the first of its
kind on a merchant ship. The
four anchors (3 bow, 1 stern)
weigh 12-14 tons each and have
cables up to 2,200 ft. long.

While in Oranjestad, the QE2
took more than 19,000 barrels
of bunker C fuel in her 6,413-
ton capacity tanks from the Es-
so bunkering terminal.

To provide fresh water, the
ship has three Weir flash eva-
porators that produce 1200 tons
of fresh water from the sea per
day. The ship was built at a to-
tal cost of approximately 30
million Pounds Sterling.

The QE2 has the largest and
most modern hospital complex
afloat. It is equipped with six
wards, dispensary, laboratory,
intensive care unit, and dental

In Service at

The first of four new visbrea-
ker furnaces was put in service
at No. 8 Pipestill on January 24,
1971. The new furnace replaces
the old cross and reducer fur-
naces and the external soaking
chambers of that unit.

The replacement of the 1930
design furnaces represents a
significant upgrading step at
Lago. This new style furnace, on
which foundation work began in
May and installation in Septem-
ber of last year, is the first of
its kind to be put in service in
the Lago refinery. New features
of the furnace are the all-weld-
ed suspended wall and center
tubes, and the Esso SO-30 high
intensity liquid fuel burners to
fire the furnace. Similar burners
are being provided for the HDS
project.

The startup of this furnace
provided Lago men with exper-
ience in operating these burners
in advance of the actual HDS
startup. Irwin Tujeehut of Proc-
ess assisted with the training in
the use of these burners.

During the startup, the Proc-
ess people were assisted by a
startup team of Emiliano Tri-
mon of the Process Department,
Calvin Assang of Technical-

Process Engineering who also
prepared the startup manual,
and W. L. Buchanan. Mr. Bucha-
nan is a former Lago employee
who transferred to Esso Engin-
eering where he helped develop
this new type of burner. He is
currently on a temporary loan
assignment at Lago to assist in
the startup of these new fur-
naces and the HDS furnaces.

Construction of similar repla-
cement furnaces for the Nos. 5,
6 and 7 Pipestills is in progress
and is scheduled for completion
in April this year. The basic
design of the furnace was done
by Esso Engineering. Lago pre-
pared the process design of the
associated piping. Mechanical
design of the new furnaces was
by Foster Wheeler Italiana, erec-
tion by Saipem and installation
of associated facilities, such as
foundations, piping and instru-
mentation, by A. G. McKee. The
electrical facilities were install-
ed by Elga, under supervision
of Henry Coffie of Mechanical-
Engineering.

The project costs approxima-
tely Fils. 7,500,000. Project Man-
ager is Allan Temple and Field
Engineer is Hank Frederiks.

Lago Tugs Safely Guide Queen Elizabeth 2 In and Out of Oranjestad Harbor

Tres Candidatos Nomina pa Yena
Vacatura den Junta di Thrift Plan

February 8 was a memorable
day in Aruba’s tourist history:
the Cunard Line’s largest tour-
ist ship, Queen Elizabeth 2,
docked at Oranjestad harbor at
about 7 a.m. The floating luxury
hotel, measuring 963 feet in
length and 105 feet in breadth
with a maximum draft of 32 feet
6 inches, was assisted during
docking operation by the two
festively decorated Lago tugs
"Esso Oranjestad” and ‘Esso
San Nicolas”.

Bringing over 1400 tourists to
Aruba, the 65,863 GRT ocean
liner can accommodate over
2000 passengers. She has a
crew of 940, including 181 offi-
cers and 759 hotel staff.

Fully airconditioned, the QE2
has a theater with seats for 530
people, two outdoor and two in-
door swimming pools for guests
and one for the crew. Its three
main restaurants are: the Co-
lumbia, with 500 seats; the Grill
Room, with 100 seats; and the
Britannia, with 815 seats.

Built with thirteen decks, the
height from keel to masthead
is about 203 feet. Her keel was
laid on July 4, 1965 and the
floating hotel resort was com-
missioned on April 18, 1969.

The main double-reduction
geared turbines of 110,000 horse-
powerful twin-screw merchant
ship afloat, with a service speed
of 28-% knots. She has only
three boilers and is the first pas-

senger vessel to be equipped to
navigate by space satellite. She
is also provided with computer
equipment that is the first of its
kind on a merchant ship. The
four anchors (3 bow, 1 stern)
weigh 12-14 tons each and have
cables up to 2,200 ft. long.

While in Oranjestad, the QE2
took more than 19,000 barrels
of bunker C fuel in her 6,413-
ton capacity tanks from the Es-
so bunkering terminal.

To provide fresh water, the
ship has three Weir flash eva-
porators that produce 1200 tons
of fresh water from the sea per
day. The ship was built at a to-
tal cost of approximately 30
million Pounds Sterling.

The QE2 has the largest and
most modern hospital complex
afloat. It is equipped with six
wards, dispensary, laboratory,
intensive care unit, and dental

In Service at

The first of four new visbrea-
ker furnaces was put in service
at No. 8 Pipestill on January 24,
1971. The new furnace replaces
the old cross and reducer fur-
naces and the external soaking
chambers of that unit.

The replacement of the 1930
design furnaces represents a
significant upgrading step at
Lago. This new style furnace, on
which foundation work began in
May and installation in Septem-
ber of last year, is the first of
its kind to be put in service in
the Lago refinery. New features
of the furnace are the all-weld-
ed suspended wall and center
tubes, and the Esso SO-30 high
intensity liquid fuel burners to
fire the furnace. Similar burners
are being provided for the HDS
project.

The startup of this furnace
provided Lago men with exper-
ience in operating these burners
in advance of the actual HDS
startup. Irwin Tujeehut of Proc-
ess assisted with the training in
the use of these burners.

During the startup, the Proc-
ess people were assisted by a
startup team of Emiliano Tri-
mon of the Process Department,
Calvin Assang of Technical-

ARUBA ESSO NEWS

First New Visbreaker Furnace Put

Process Engineering who also
prepared the startup manual,
and W. L. Buchanan. Mr. Bucha-
nan is a former Lago employee
who transferred to Esso Engin-
eering where he helped develop
this new type of burner. He is
currently on a temporary loan
assignment at Lago to assist in
the startup of these new fur-
naces and the HDS furnaces.

Construction of similar repla-
cement furnaces for the Nos. 5,
6 and 7 Pipestills is in progress
and is scheduled for completion
in April this year. The basic
design of the furnace was done
by Esso Engineering. Lago pre-
pared the process design of the
associated piping. Mechanical
design of the new furnaces was
by Foster Wheeler Italiana, erec-
tion by Saipem and installation
of associated facilities, such as
foundations, piping and instru-
mentation, by A. G. McKee. The
electrical facilities were install-
ed by Elga, under supervision
of Henry Coffie of Mechanical-
Engineering.

The project costs approxima-
tely Fils. 7,500,000. Project Man-
ager is Allan Temple and Field
Engineer is Hank Frederiks.
